Jamie Foxx was spotted carrying
his a sleeping child after the Kids Inaugural Concert last night. The District of Columbia may have never seen so many people on its streets. Peep some of the chaos surround this historic occasion:
Crowds streamed into the nation’s capital Tuesday, jamming subway cars and packing the National Mall from the Capitol to the Washington Monument hours before President-elect Barack Obama was to be sworn in.
For weeks, officials urged people to arrive early for the historic inauguration of the nation’s first black president and throngs of revelers heeded that advice, streaming onto the Mall hours before daybreak.
By 7 a.m., some 207,000 people had entered Washington’s Metro transit system, transit officials said. Huge lines formed outside subway stations; many parking lots filled up and had to be closed.
“Platforms are extremely crowded,” Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said. Lines were six to 10 deep at fare machines.
Sh*t is wild in Chocolate City today. Barack Obama is about to be our 44th President. In the words of Madea: Halleluyer!
